There is new a way that athletes have started to recovery from injuries and its called Cyrotherapy. Imagine stepping into a giant steel cylinder that pumps in nitrogen for 2-3 minutes. The smoke filling the cylinder looking like a science fair experiment all while you stand in your underwear and freeze your ass off.
Most people would avoid trying it all together, but before you follow the crowd you should know about some of the benefits of Cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy treatment is the local or general use of low temperatures in medical therapy. In other words, cryotherapy treatment is a cooling treatment that requires spending a short period of time in a “cryosauna” where the temperature drops as low as -300 degrees Fahrenheit. Cryotherapy treatment is quickly becoming popular due the prospect of its ability to heal injuries and slow the signs of aging.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT?
According to the US Cryotherapy website, the benefits of cryotherapy treatment include the following:
- Faster muscle recovery
- Promotes healthier skin complexion
- Invigorates the mind
- Improves sleep pattern
- Assists with cellulite reduction
- Effective with chronic pain management
- Faster surgical recovery
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Improved immunity (with regular treatment)
HOW DOES CRYOTHERAPY TREATMENT WORK?
When we subject our bodies to ice cold temperatures, our bodies go in to a “flight or fight” response that is meant to keep us freezing.
As the cryosauna exposes our skin to super-cold temperatures, our bodies go in to survival mode.
This causes your blood supply to flow to your most vital organs in order to relay more oxygen and nutrients. Once you leave this super-cold environment, the enriched and less toxic blood is flushed back into the rest of the body.
Superstar athletes such as Lebron James and Floyd Mayweather have further fueled the recent popularity of whole body cryotherapy treatment.
